Business Sense

New Look – New Era

On behalf of the entire Flagship Community Bank team, we are pleased to announce that under new ownership, our name will change to Flagship Bank. We are simplifying our name by removing the word community – but we are not removing the community from our mission.

By continuing to provide you with superior customer service, and improved products, we'll keep our community at the center of everything that we do.

How does this affect you?

We plan to grow Flagship Bank significantly in the next few years so that we can serve new and existing customers with more convenient locations, and improved products. You can expect the same warm welcome from familiar faces when you visit or call Flagship.

Our website will go through an initial update that will include our new logo and colors. The image below shows you what to expect beginning in October. Your online banking login link and password will not change.

New Leadership

West Florida Bank Corporation, led by Bob McGivney, Jim Nelson, Rob Shaw, and other Pinellas County banking veterans, completed the purchase of Flagship Community Bank on October 24. The West Florida Bank Corporation Board includes local business leaders Paul Wikle, David Brandon, Ron Hockman, Ken Marks, Bob McGivney, Joe Oliveri, Mark S. Klein, and Brent Sembler. 

We understand that you may have questions or concerns about the transition and welcome you to drop by. Although there will be some new faces, you’ll see familiar faces you know and trust who will continue to offer you friendly and knowledgeable service.

We are excited about entering into a new era of growth and development at Flagship Bank.
